The Need for Accessible Lecterns
The need for accessible podiums arises from the goal of achieving universal design – creating environments that are inherently accessible to both people with and without disabilities. Traditional lecterns often pose challenges for individuals with disabilities, particularly those who use wheelchairs. The height of a standard lectern can be a barrier to visibility and communication, hindering the speaker’s ability to effectively convey their message. Here, accessible podiums step in as a solution, offering a platform that caters to every speaker’s needs.

This lectern was conveniently wired up with two XLR shock mount connectors for quick plug-and-play ability of up to two slim gooseneck microphones, along with a 12″ LED reading light, featuring a power switch.
Quick disconnect connectors and a conveniently placed power bar at the base of the lectern, provided easy access for AV technician set up. Two 2″ grommets provided easy cable passthrough for a neat and tidy configuration of surface placed accessories.
